Someone lost their job on this one!

R&A Touts "Groundbreaking WiFi Network" As Sign Installation Severs Line, Knocking Out Media WiFi!

 

All I can say I whoever did this is likely looking for a new job today. Fiber repairs are not cheap and the lose of connection probably cause a bit of panic among the media there. It is pretty impressive how quickly it got repaired, but I'm sure that came at a premium price! I've made some goofs in my years working, but never something that was nearly this costly. Anyone every do something this bad and keep their job?

I worked for a large financial operation in the back office as Compliance/Security Mgr. A Nigerian check stealing ring infiltrated us, walking with almost $2MM in checks over a couple months. All the precautions we had in place and still we got hosed. I was nervous then because I would have been an easy scapegoat but I survived and worked with Feds to recover about $1.5MM and put a couple people behind bars.

Wow, I can't imagine something of that scale happening. Kind of makes this fiber fiasco look small potatoes!

It was a crazy situation, about 11 years ago now. Very sophisticated. Recruiting people who would pass background checks, acid-washing checks, moving from house to house so the Feds couldn't catch up to them. The all the negotiations with banks who had ultimately cashed the checks. Very interesting 18-month or so period of my life.

People who should get fired are the ones who didn't map or mark out the line, knowing that infrastructure was being installed there.

I don't know, around here it's the responsibility of the person putting something in the ground to ask about buried lines.
